Who knew how hard it would be to get in the habit of posting to our blog? Well it’s not easy! I think the trick will be to simply add it to my calendar every week. We’ll see how that works out 😉
Now down to business. We’re working on a book of traps for 5E D&D! So far it is going quite smoothly, and we even have a special guest writer who we’ve been wanting to work with for years! We’re in the process of commissioning artwork and working on the logo design. below is what we’ve come up with so far for the logo design so far and we’re liking the direction it’s going.
The book currently consists of 5 chapters with around 250 traps, a chapter with a few dozen puzzles, as well as chapters on example dungeons and even a section on the physiology of traps, when to use them and which ones to use. It’s going to be an extremely useful resource and will be available as a hardcover book as well as 5 card decks. The book or decks can be used separately or in tandem. The book will have more detail and history about the traps, but the cards will contain all the basic information required to run them. There are 5 decks so that you can pull from traps at an appropriate challenge rating. The decks range from 1-4, 5-8, 9-12, 13-16, and 17-20. This way you’re always challenging your players appropriately.
This title is set to hit Kickstarter this spring so keep an eye out for it!
